Dudelange before the end? Here is our betting prediction!
Sensation! Dudelange moves into the group stage of the Europa League. These were the headline news just over a year ago, when for the first time a club from Luxembourg qualified for the group stage of an international competition. Coach Dino Toppmöller, the son of Klaus Toppmöller, has brought this club the highlight of the club’s history, but has meanwhile migrated to the second Belgian league to RE Virton. The coach was the key to the success of F91 Dudelange. You will see how it goes now. That Dudelange but this year can also cause a furor, is not very likely, because even in the first qualifying round of the Champions League threatens the Luxembourgians out.

Football Betting Prediction Valletta vs Dudelange
The first leg against Malta’s champions, FC Valletta, came to an end last week with a 2-2 draw in Luxembourg. On Tuesday, the second leg will take place on the Mediterranean island. Valletta is anything but an adversary that spreads fear and terror, but the Maltese have the slightly better cards in hand after the first leg to move into the next round. The bookmakers offer similar odds on the progress of both teams. Therefore, before the return match between Valletta and Dudelange a prediction on getting ahead is not easy.
The Luxembourgers have a little more international experience after the last season and probably also a little more quality in the squad. However, this must be played on Tuesday, otherwise the qualification for the Champions League was done early and the way to get back into the group stage of the Europa League, would still be very far. The importance of this game is very high, especially for the Luxembourgers.
If F91 can handle it, then we would still be tempted to give in the game between Valletta and Dudelange a tip on the progress of the guests, especially since the Maltese do not play in their ancestral stadium. Whether that is a disadvantage, will show on Tuesday. The second leg of the Champions League qualifying round between FC Valletta and F91 Dudelange in the MFA Centenary Stadium of Ta’Qali.
Valletta – Statistics & Current Form
As a top club in Malta, the FC Valletta has always played regularly in the European Cup. Many matches have not yet won the Malteser. In general, the entry into the second qualifying round was the highest of feelings to this day. As a big number, the 25 times champion of Malta is therefore not traded in international business. With Darren Abdill, however, a very ambitious coach took over the helm before the season, which now wants to bring the FC Valletta more sustainable on the European football map. To complete this mission successfully, successes in the qualifying rounds of the European Cup are essential. The beginning seems to have been made last week. With the 2: 2 in Dudelange FC Valletta is unbeaten in the European Cup in three games. Should this continue to be the case on Tuesday, chances are to move into the second round and thus to duels against Ferencvaros Budapest or Ludogorez Razgrad very well.
Before the start of the second leg between Valletta and Dudelange, the odds indicate that the bookmakers are confident that the Maltese will make the leap to the next round. Coach Darren Abdilla has saved his players from having to play a test match between the two matches against the Luxembourg champions. Therefore, the meeting in the previous week in Dudelange was also the last game of FC Valletta.
“Our goal is to get a positive result and I’m confident that we have enough quality in our ranks to get the job done.” – Darren Abdilla
After the 0-2 break, the Maltese returned unexpectedly in the second section. Douglas Packer and Jean Borg marked the draw with their goals.
Bitter is that midfield strategist Rowen Muscat still saw the traffic light card shortly before the end of the game and now has to watch in the second leg. Thus, Darren Abdilla will have to rebuild at least one position. Antonio Monticelli would be the logical substitute. Does the handicap ensure that Valletta – Dudelange is not lucrative enough to give a tip on existing odds? A question mark stood to last also behind keeper Henry Bonello and center-back Jonathan Caruana. But both should be completely fit again and at least the goalkeeper should be in the starting eleven.
Expected team of Valletta:
↳ Bonello – Zerafa, J. Borg, S. Borg, Pena – Monticelli – Packer, Tulimieri, Nwoko, Fontanella – Malano
↳ Team: Abdilla

Dudelange – Statistics & Current Form
The team of F91 Dudelange has a completely different face this season. The departure of Dino Toppmöller has changed a lot. Many players have migrated with their coach to Belgium. Only a few players who caused a sensation in the preseason remained in Dudelange. Therefore, it is not a big surprise that this team, which was thrown together at a relatively short notice, does not even harmonize and there are construction sites in many locations. That the new coach Emilio Ferrera but form players and can build a team, he has proven at RSC Anderlecht in the youth, as he promoted numerous talents. U21 and qualifying for the Champions League are two different pairs of shoes. Little is known about the current form of the Luxembourgers. The season is still too short for that.
The first leg came last week when Valletta was on equal terms in Luxembourg. That had not been expected in advance.

Meanwhile, we know that it was still not enough to win. Last weekend, there was a 2-4 defeat in a friendly against the German league team from Elversberg. Here is the next clue as to the current level of performance of the Luxembourgers. Therefore, before the return match between Valletta and Dudelange a prediction on the progress of the guests rather not likely. It will be interesting if Emilio Ferrera could bring his team closer to his style of football. Presence or familiarity with the new system, we certainly can not talk yet. Personnel, it looks like a similar formation as in the last week should accumulate. Antonio Luisi and Antoine Bernier will have to pass due to injury.

↳ Kips – Stumpf, Schnell, Delgado, Bouchouari – Garos, Bougrine, Pokar, Stolz – Bettaieb, Cabral Barbosa
↳ Trainer: Ferrera
